(A) Customer has materially breached this Agreement and fails to remedy the breach within thirty (30) days of written notice;
(B) JetBrains is required to do so by law (for example, where the provision of the Product to Customer is, or becomes, unlawful); or

12.1. Customer must comply with all applicable laws and regulations with regard to economic sanctions, export controls, import regulations, restrictive measures, and trade embargoes (all herein referred to as "Sanctions"), including those of the European Union and United States. Customer declares and warrants that it is not a person targeted by Sanctions, nor is it otherwise owned or controlled by or acting on behalf of any entity or person targeted by Sanctions.

Such use is subject to the JetBrains EAP User Agreement (available at https://www.jetbrains.com/legal/docs/toolbox/user_eap.html), and by using the EAP Version Customer accepts these terms and conditions. If Customer ceases to use an EAP Version but continues to use Product, such use will continue to be governed by this Agreement. Your use of an EAP Version does not entitle you to any Subscription refund and does not relieve you of your payment obligations under this Agreement.
13.4. Changes to this Agreement. The Agreement can be updated from time to time to reflect changes in the Product and how it is offered to you.
(A) If this happens, we will update the terms on the JetBrains website and let you know either:

(ii) in your JetBrains Account; or

13.5. Opportunity to Review. Customer declares that it has had sufficient opportunity to review this Agreement, understand the content of all of its sections, negotiate its terms, and seek independent professional legal advice before entering into it. Consequently, any statutory “form contract” (“adhesion contract”) regulations shall not be applicable to this Agreement.
13.6. Severability. If a particular term of this Agreement is not enforceable, the unenforceability of that term will not affect any other terms of this Agreement.
13.7. Interpretation. Headings and titles are for convenience only and do not affect the interpretation of this Agreement. Terms such as “including” are not exhaustive.
13.8. No Waiver. Our failure to enforce or exercise any part of this Agreement is not a waiver of that section.

13.10. Governing Law. This Agreement is governed by the laws of the Czech Republic, without reference to conflict of laws principles and specifically excluding the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods. The Parties to the agreement constituted by this Agreement undertake to use best commercial efforts to amicably settle any disputes arising hereunder (“Dispute”).
13.11. Dispute Resolution.

Consumer Disputes can also be settled out of court through the Czech Trade Inspection Authority (www.coi.cz) or the European Commission online platform for dispute resolution (http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr).
13.13. Force Majeure. Neither Party shall be in breach of this Agreement, or otherwise liable to the other, by reason of any delay in performance, or non-performance, of any of its obligations under this Agreement (except payment obligations), arising directly from an act of God, fire, flood, natural disaster, act of terrorism, strike, lock-out, labor dispute, public health emergency, civil commotion, riot, or act of war.
